I really enjoyed stitching the 1861 Antique Sampler by BBD in the book "In Friendship's Way." I love the note that said when the ladies bought the old sampler they noted the date of 1861. That was the year Abraham Lincoln was elected. This young ladies world was about to change forever. I did make lots of color changes!!
This is my current project " Basketful of Summer Time" by With Thy Needle and Thread. I am considering doing all 4 seasons in this group. She has done Spring and Summer. When I see the other two, I will decide. That dog is so cute!
Now for the birds! Every year we have a very low tide in the summer. There is one particular beach that attracts the eagles. We counted 25 of them all feasting on the beach goodies. I like this photo because I caught two of them facing opposite directions. I call it ,"Which way should we go now?"
While we were standing on a dock, this juvenile bald eagle flew very close to us. It just sat there for the longest time. It is lacking the white head but look at those talons and the beak!
The same dock area has tons of purple martin houses. Here is a baby waiting for dinner. That eagle made the parents very nervous!!!
A beautiful heron just patiently waiting for a fish. I felt like this was bird paradise!
Thanks so much for joining me today. I hope all your comments show up on my emails so I can respond. That is the part of blogging that makes us friends! Have a wonderful week!
